NFL Notes: Cowboys, Dolphins, Packers, Seahawks

     

Cowboys

  • Todd Archer reports that the Cowboys have promoted Keith O’Quinn as special teams coordinator and Ben Bloom as linebackers coach after both served as special teams assistants last season.

Dolphins

Packers

Packers new GM Brian Gutekunst said at the Senior Bowl last week that while he likes the team’s backup quarterbacks, he thinks competition “is always a good thing” and it’s possible they could consider bringing in a veteran.

“I obviously like our quarterback group quite a bit but I think competition is always a good thing,” Gutekunst said, via PackersNews.com. “If that makes sense, if the right veteran is out there that I think can help bring the group up, then I think we’d certainly consider it.

Seahawks

Alex Marvez reports that the Seahawks are hiring Jethro Franklin as their new assistant DL coach.
